The latest news and prayer requests

We're sorry for the lack of updates but as you can imagine, we are really busy with all the trips to/from the hospital and me working remotely each day. Here's a quick update on Rocco:

He had two rounds of medicine for his PDA and it still remains open. While he was on the meds, the doctors took him off feeds. Friday night they started him back on feeds and they are slowly increasing them - he's doing good with them so far. The doctors will be watching to see if he continues tolerating his feeds, listening to his lungs for fluids and listening for his murmur. If those things are not going well, we may have to talk about surgery to close the PDA.

Sloan, Madden and Jagger are all doing good. They are tolerating their feeds but they all have some reflux. The nurses are trying to slowly ween them off oxygen

Prayer requests:
- Rocco's PDA to close and no fluid build-up in lungs
- Each baby to gain weight, tolerate feeds and stay free of infections

As always, thanks to all for your continued prayers! My God can move mountains!!

- Nick

You are SO right, he can move mountains! Praying like crazy for you guys!! Can't wait for you to be back in Baton Rouge and me to make a trip to see your precious babies and let you take a NAP! That is, if you trust me and Jac!! I know that might be scary, but I think we can handle it!!

Yeah, Sandra I second that, trust us Kami and Nick, we have experience and while our resume "references" don't speak very well yet, they LOVE US!

Rocco is just trying to nab all the attention. You're going to have to get used to this as it is now a way of life for you. Seriously though, I will be praying that stubborn little valve makes it way to the closed position pronto so it won't cause you or him any more stress.

LOVE YOU guys and I CAN'T wait till you get back to the big BR! Can you just picture what we will look like tailgating at LSU with our 8 babies? Fun times ahead!
